About Marian Stewart Titus
I was born and grew up in Jamaica, just 30 miles away from Chrisanns Beach Resort. My childhood memories are filled with visits to the beaches on Jamaica's north coast. I've been living in New York City since 1998, working in public relations in the non profit sector, and more recently, as a college instructor. I also make jewelry and quilts, and sell these at craft fairs around New York City. I visit Jamaica several times each year and spend part of my vacations at the beach while I'm there. My condo at no. 10 Chrisanns Beach Resort is now my creative retreat from the hustle and bustle of New York City.
Marian Stewart Titus purchased this Condo in 2009
Why Marian Stewart Titus chose Tower Isle
This location is very convenient for many activities. Chrisanns Beach Resort is an ideal haven if you want to get away from the big resort hotels, and enjoy the calmer, more mellow side of Jamaica. I love the beach, and Chrisanns has its own private cove where you can swim in the sheltered area, or venture further out to the deeper sections of the sea. The countryside sorrounding Chrisanns Beach Resort has some of the most breathtakingly beautiful vegetation, beaches and rivers on Jamaica's north coast. Chrisanns Beach Resort is also near to many atttractions, and is an easy 45 minute ride from the Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay, along a newly built highway that has awesome views of the Caribbean sea.
What makes this Condo unique
The sunsets from the beach are to die for. The breezes that you'll experience if you're on the beach or out in the gazebo overlooking the sea are calming and refreshing. When you're sitting on the balcony of no. 10, you can see the sea, and hear the waves all day and night. Having a housekeeper who can cook for you is a real benefit, as she can prepare Jamaican dishes if you wish. Glenn's Restaurant, just across the street, offers Jamaican and international dishes. There's a Glenn's menu at the front desk, so you can call them and ask them to deliver right to your condo. Your condo has access to a wide variety of cable channels, and you can also borrow a range of current DVDs from the resort manager's office, at no charge, and watch these on a DVD in the condo. It's like having Netflix without the fees. If you can't do without the Internet, no worries, as the complex has both wireless and high speed plug in Web access.

Chrissans is an amazing place. We enjoyed snorkeling and the pool was awesome. Loved exploring the local area and met so many nice people. We spent time in a local pottery shop talking with the potter Delbert who had beautiful wares at factory prices. We also discovered a hidden restaurant 1/2 mile east just past the high school that has excellent food at excellent prices called El Pablo’s. Jodian, the house keeper took excellent care of us. All this and more made our stay here a vacation to remember. Thank you, Mark and Joan
This was a very clean and well managed property. The owner provides a lot of various resources to help you make the most of your stay. Having the use of the cell phone is extremely helpful.
We have a 10 year old son with high-functioning autism/Aspergers. It was therefore important to us to find a peaceful place to use as a home base... somewhere to relax, cook our own food, watch familiar TV programs and return to familiar routines in the evening after our daily adventures.
This apartment was perfect for our needs. It had everything we needed including nice touches like masks, snorkels, and thick towels. We were perfectly comfortable. We slept well. The bed in the loft is particularly comfortable.
The apartment is located with a small complex called Chrisann's, which has about 30 units. It also has a lovely little beach sheltered by a breakwater and a small, well-maintained pool. Our son loved climbing the rocks to look for hermit crabs, snails, and colourful rocks. We loved being able to take a dip in the pool, the ocean, or both whenever we felt hot.
Chrisann's has a small staff that are responsible for cleaning the units, keeping the grounds neat, and providing gate security. All of them were patient and kind with my son. We felt safe and happy there.
Marian provided great information to make our Jamaican experience as smooth as possible. She was also very responsive to our e-mails.
We will miss Chrisann's, and apartment 10, very much.
Thanks so much for your very kind words. I'm so glad your family had a good time! I'll pass on your compliments to the hard working staff.
I look forward to hosting you again any time.
Mi casa es su casa,
El departamento está muy bien puesto, con detalles adorables y cuidado con amor.
Vimos películas, cocinamos, hicimos snorkel, era como estar en casa con un paisaje mucho más lindo, por supuesto! Me pareció un poco lejano del centro. Pero si lo que buscan es descansar y disfrutar de la pileta es ideal!
Wonderful amenities and staff!
I booked Apt. 10 at Chrisann's as a surprise for my husband's birthday and was thrilled with the accommodations and staff. The apartment was fully stocked with games, books, ironing board, blow dryer, beach towels and even snorkeling gear! The kitchen had everything you need to prepare great meals and we were even welcomed with a gift bag that contained some specialty items (including a bar of soap which I had forgotten at home!) Cathy did a marvelous job of tending to our needs and immaculately cleaned the apartment every day and we felt very pampered. The apt. owner's recommendation of Glenn's Restaurant across the street was fantastic, great authentic food and service, along with the Jerk Center within walking distance. We rented a car but staff will arrange for anything you want, fresh fish, lobster, taxi's, specific items from the store, and they even set up a couple of tables for our large Chrisann's group to have dinner by the pool one night. Our TV in Apt. 10 even had the NFL playoff games on while our friends in other apartments didn't have access so we really appreciated that taste of home too. We plan on returning to Chrisann's on a more frequent basis and will definitely request Apt.10!
Dear Tami and Rick: Thanks so much for your kind words, and I'm really glad you both had a good vacation. I'll be sure to pass on your compliments to the staff as well. Looking forward to hosting you both again very soon.
Lovely relaxing vacation
We really enjoyed staying at Marian's place. It is clean and comfortable, and the staff, and Marian's recommendations for other people--especially Kristy's taxi service--were great. Cathy made us a great meal of curried chicken and rice and beans. We would have had her cooked more. We liked the location very much--we thought of renting a car but decided we didn't need one. Glenn's across the street was a good place for any meal. Not much of a beach at this place but you can easily walk to Bamboo (previously Reggae Beach) Beach. Take a route taxi to Moxon's just to the east, which has stunning views and good restaurant and snorkeling. Walk to the spa at Couples Tower Island resort nearby for a very luxurious massage (we got a day pass for there too which is pricey at $100 per person, but lots of free food, drinks and activities for the price). Best of all Toscanini is right down the road. We explored outside of the immediate area a little bit, but mostly stayed in the neighborhood nearby. We were happy with our choice to stay in this modest but very comfortable accommodation, and spend money going out.
Thanks so much Miguel for your kind words. Glad you had a good vacation and I look forward to hosting you again.
